What a wonderful hotel right in the middle of the greatest sights in Athens! The room was lovely, although somewhat small, but it fit our needs perfectly. Perhaps the best part of the hotel was the wonderful staff, especially the reception, who went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and well taken care of. The reception booked all...

Compact room with side view of the Acropolis. Well appointed and comfortable with nice bathroom and toiletries. Nice touches with bathrobes and slippers. The reception staff were exceptionally...

Sweet Home hotel was a great stay, we booked this hotel last minute based on the reviews and are expectations were exceeded. The staff was very engaging and assisted us with all of our questions and needs, it really felt like home.

We only had one night in Athens and wanted to be near the acropolis for which the Sweet Home hotel is well located. The hotel is down a side street and up some stairs to the reception with a lift to the room floors. Our room was compact but charming with a balcony over the street. The shower worked well...

Such an appropriate name "Sweet Home"...our room was small, clean and cosy...just like home.Great location...walking distance to sights, restaurants, Brettos Bar and shopping. Easy and affordable access from the airport by the Xpress bus X95. Breakfast was well presented, awesome selection, most delightful and plentiful. What a delightful way to start our holiday.

The Sweet Home Hotel is located in the Plaka area filled with streets of shopping and restaurants. It is also close to the Acropolis. The hotel room was nice, clean and compact.

The cutest room with a view of the Acropolis. Clean room, abundant breakfast, wonderful and helpful staff and all in the heart of Plaka where everything happens. Pricey, yes.... but everything seems that way in Greece. I certainly recommend this hotel. We took the metro blue line from the airport to Syntagma Square stop. From there its a 3 block...

The hotel is very nice and a great location-very close to plaka/monastiraki area as well as syntagma metro(direct link with the airport) is 10mins walk away. . The bedrooms are spacious and clean. The service is very good. The only minus was the price, for what they offer it is pricey

Sweet Home Hotel was a charming historic building near the Plaka area. Many of Athens' best sites were within a 10-20 minute walk and the hotel had great rooms and a kind staff. We were really impressed by the breakfast spread which was included in our room rate and felt it was great quality for the money.

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
